The Judgment of Paris
A wine tasting flight from the winning wineries of the 1976 Paris tasting and 1986 re-tasting.
In 1976, a selection of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon from California were put up for comparison against their well-established French counterparts in a blind tasting. The expectation was that the French wines would easily win the competition. The impact that was made when the Napa Valley wines defeated their French competitors stunned the industry. This event, known as the Judgment of Paris, not only put California wine on the map, it also revolutionized the world of wine. A re-tasting was held 10 years later, and the California wines won again.
To commemorate the tasting that changed the wine world, Perry’s is offering a wine flight with selections from the winning wineries of the Judgment of Paris.
